1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I know SF has a bias towards CP and GATs, but can I get some opinions on these sneakers from Dries Van Noten (SS15, I believe). Buy or Pass? Thanks.

    I think if you're buying to flip you really have to select the brands/items v carefully. Like, I would think trying to sell off tech ninja and hype streetwear is going to be a lot easier than trying to flip say... workwear or even second-tier "artisinal" brands.

    It's more like you just have to know them, have a good feel for the value, etc. Some items are worth buying and flipping even if the market is small and the sale takes weeks or months, because the value persists despite the lack of immediate buyers.

    Totally different, but have to pick one.

    I'm working for the next 9 months in an office that requires jacket and tie and don't have much nice CM stuff. But then again it's only 9 months, so maybe I just get by with the couple of boring Brooks Brothers suits I already have and keep buying cool non-CM stuff I'll actually wear long term?

    don't know if the bbj would fly well in an office, but if you can get away with what you have already then do so and get the bbj.

    Yeah, BBJ.
    For 9 months there's always H&M to get you by.

    actually, i'm still wearing down my old pair on ann ds hahaha they're sitting in the closet but i quite like them. the only thing i'm not too fond of is the leather. i prefer the suede because it's more matte. i do wear my ann ds quite frequently in general though.

    If you're in a pinch for office-appropriate stuff, the 'qlo comfort jacket is pretty wearable with biz-caz stuffs: http://www.uniqlo.com/us/product/men-comfort-jacket-158106.html#68 I liked it better when it was ventless (who needs vents on a jacket that short?), but I assume it's basically the same otherwise. The BBJ piece looks really cool, btw.

    Last Derbies/PTBs post. Found two British options per MoK, both look pretty similar and have Dannite soles:

    Cheany Deal

    Barker Nairn

    Tricker's Woodstock Espresso. These are slightly more expensive and look weird from the side but I prefer this color over black

    Alden black calf PTBs

    AE Leeds cost as much as the Cheany and are probably not as well made. Loake 205s use polished binder. Aldens are the most expensive.
